Step-by-step in practice mode
Guitar Bots has a step-by-step option (the footprints icon) in practice mode that, when activated, stops at each note/chord if you miss it until you have played it. I find this hugely beneficial, because it keeps me from just making the same mistakes over and over again- I have to fix myself. I know I can slow it down, but when it is only one or two spots you slip up on every time it is a pain to play the whole song way slowed down.
As I said, and I will say it again, this happens in Yousician, but only in the easiest songs, what make the benefits of it useless. So, this would be expanded to all songs.
Yes, this should be applied to all instruments. But this REALLY happens in Yousician, but only for the easiest songs. Try playing a very easy song. In that song, don't play a note or play the wrong note.Instead of that note turning red, you will see a talk bubble where it says "Play the note/chord". This talk bubble only will disappear when you play the right note. This would be essential for string instruments, but important for them all.
That happens in Yousician, but only in basic (levels 0 and 1) songs, just like Funky for You in piano and Love On the Rocks in guitar. Expanding it to all songs could be a great ideia.

+1, needed feature ! They already have it :
- Piano Maestro
- Piano Marvel
- Playground Session
- even Simply Piano...
I prefer Yousician for many reasons, but this missing feature alone prevents me to subscribe.
The same for me. I tried Yousician, but with Piano Maestro and its “hold on” mode I have the time too see my mistakes and I can therefore learn a song much faster. That’s a pity because Yousician is more “adult friendly” and it has got a huge library. Moreover, the “wait for me” mode is a very basic feature, I think, so I can’t understand why they won’t add it...

All the comments seem to be for guitar but I would like it for piano. Other piano practice programs have it ( like simply piano and piano maestro, etc. ) it is called 'hold on' so the musics holds on the note or chord until the user plays it correctly then moves on. Very useful for learning new pieces. Thanks
I would like that in practical mode there would be an option for the reproduction to wait until the correct note.
This is a great idea and would have done 3 votes except I have already used all my votes :(, but, I hope that this happens, also, it does this in level seven on a trainer for bends:).
At some point when I have almost mastered a song and gold is consistently 1 or 2 notes away I restart the song anyway. So this would be a really handy feature.
I know it probably sounds like laziness but I often stand in the living room with my notebook on the floor hooked up to the TV which makes input via keyboard or mouse kind of awkward.
I just started playing with voice attack on the PC to try using spoken commands for keypresses to make things easier.
I never used guitar bots but this sounds a great idea. Anything to guide us through all the notes and help with the more complex passages would be very beneficial. It would help with the frustration of keep getting a particular passage wrong.
i didn´t know the function, but sounds great.
Absolutely agree! I actually preferred the functionality of Guitar Bots and kinda wish you hadn't consolidated them together. That said, Yousician would be more learner friendly (which is the main market you're aiming for right?) with this feature.

Sometimes when learning a difficult new piece 25% tempo is just too fast.....the footprint icon in Guitarbots was very useful for the first practice of a difficult new song.

I found this feature in GuitarBots very useful as well... and am really looking forward to it being implemented in Yousician.....
it might be cool.. if when it was..., it came with tolerance settings.... so we could adjust how strict it is...
